      Being angry and using language that is inappropriate 
does not produce any worthwhile results. What does work is 
to produce a good product. OOo was badly handled by Oracle 
when it bought Sun Microsystems. The time it took for Apache 
to straighten out all the licenses and code was part of the 
problem. Wait for a while until Apache Open Office becomes 
better known before you begin a rant like this. You might be 
surprised at the difference in attitudes. But remember it 
will take time.
      I have been around Open Office since its source code 
was first made open source. Very few people knew about it 
then either. Things change with time.
